I do have a source, and while he doesn’t really have the inside track on actual hockey operations, he tends to know what’s going on in and around Scotiabank Place.

I think SSF makes a good point though. The team is basically saying, "We've run the team into the ground. What will make you come back, a nice shiny scoreboard (that we're already going to buy) or a better quality hotdog?" The point is, what we really want is for the team to play respectable hockey again.

I don't know. I can see both sides. The team needs to ask for the season ticket holders' opinions, if for nothing else than to make them feel involved. Someone (22_4_ever, I think) recently made comments about the state of the team as it relates to his willingness to renew his tickets next year. I can understand that the team would ask where those fans want the facelift to take place. I also understand SSF's position that none of the above matters.

I see both sides...

So, taking a page from SSF's comment I wanted to answer "improve the team" but obviously that isn't possible. I didn't see how a new sound system or scoreboard, or even new concessions would help me enjoy the game more than a better on ice product.

Drafting we can't influence, but thinking about making playing here more attractive I could only think of things as a player that would make playing here more enjoyable.

If that happens, maybe we sign a goalie like Bryzgalov instead of another team because while we are young and up and coming he has a comfy new players lounge to think about his time in Ottawa, and a new gym/rehab facilities to help recover/prepare better.

very cool...

well I think everyone suspected they would have to do something with the all star game coming...I really couldn't see the NHL being happy about their showcase being held in a city that can't jazz it up. Ever wonder why the Islanders are never even in the running...

There's no point asking the fans if a good team would encourage them to come to the rink. The answer is obviously yes. The marketing guys running the survey and managing ticket sales are only going to be interested in the things they can actually influence. The Sens (and probably every other team) have been conducting this kind of research for a long time.

And there's obvious value in doing this kind of research, as there are always things that can be improved to make the game experience more enjoyable.

Agreed. Like I said, if nothing else, this type of survey makes people feel involved at a time when the on-ice product is lacking. At the same time, I absolutely understand a fan saying, "Who cares about hotdogs and scoreboards. Make the team respectable."
